Project Officer Diabetes Detection

Foorough joined Diabetes SA to support the Research and Service Development team for planning programs and running research projects for early detection and prevention of diabetes. She has been a researcher for the past 12 years and brings to the role her knowledge, skills and experiences gained through her PhD and Master’s degree projects, as well as her contributions to several community public health projects.

As an Accredited Practising Dietitian for several years, she understands the importance of early detection and appropriate interventions to improve health and wellbeing of people with or at risk of diabetes and she is passionate to instill that within her community through her role at Diabetes SA.
